Theme News Roundup 27 February

WordPress 3.1 hits the streets

It was a big week this week in WordPress land with the launch of WordPress 3.1 – read our coverage.

Let the exodus from Tumblr to WordPress begin

Ok this might be a bit premature. Tumblr ain’t going anywhere in the near future. But given it’s recent constant problems with downtime I can see more and more people making the switch in the near future. Well this week, that process got a whole lot easier due to the formal release of Post Templates in 3.1 and really nifty app from WooThemes called Tumblr 2 WordPress which helps you move from… erm… Tumblr to WordPress. Mashable have a nice post on their experiences with the app. I think the real secret sauce of the Tumblr community, the community itself and it’s re-blog and bookmarklet features will mean that many will not make the move just yet. Plus WordPress really needs to raise it’s game on that front.
